The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Sport | Football - By Nick Hoult

Joe Clarke and Tom Kohler-cad­more have been found guilty of bring­ing the game into dis­re­pute and is­sued a pub­lic apol­ogy for be­ing part of a What­sapp group that ex­changed dis­re­spect­ful mes­sages about women.

Clarke, 23, and Kohler-cad­more, 24, were fined £2,000 and sus­pended for four matches by an Eng­land and Wales Cricket Board tri­bunal. Their sus­pen­sions were viewed as hav­ing been served al­ready af­ter they were dropped from the Eng­land Lions tour in the win­ter when the ev­i­dence emerged dur­ing the rape trial of their for­mer Worces­ter­shire team-mate Alex Hep­burn.

Clarke and Kohler-cad­more were not on trial and there is no sug­ges­tion they com­mit­ted a crime but the ECB took action af­ter re­view­ing ev­i­dence from the case.

Clarke, who plays for Not­ting­hamshire, and York­shire’s Kohler­cad­more both is­sued state­ments re­gret­ting their in­volve­ment in the What­sapp group and wish­ing to put it be­hind them.
